Service delivered its blurb like a machine gun. Once the main dish was served, service disappeared. Steaks (what else) were greasy when served, as if oil had been poured on them. One came undercooked. When sent back, the same piece of meat came back, better cooked this time. At the prices, the meat should have been swapped for a new... More

Valet service that opened your car door and then opened the main restaurant door and than another door opened for you. The service was spot on and everyone friendly and attentive, but not overly. We had a great Christmas Eve dinner our servers Jim, Pedro and Christian were fabulous. The food was also very good with a lot of variations... More

Like The Keg, Ruth Chris' is a great and reliable steakhouse with seafood and chicken options plus and awesome bar and wine selection. Service is impeccable and food is great with large servings and nice seasoning.

Dined at Ruth's Chris on Thanksgiving and it was perfection. Returned last week for happy hour. The food choices were plentiful. Food was hot and attractively presented. Most of all the shrimp, tuna, and steak sliders were delicious. Drinks were good too. Loved the bar area, spacious, decorative. I will definitely return and highly recommend.

After an excellent experience at Ruth's Chris in NYC many years ago, we decided to visit again, for our wedding anniversary, after hearing tv ads. So disappointing. Shockingly disappointing. Crab stack appetizer with soggy cuke slices, and avocado with brown sections. Crab was nice, but how long was that appetizer sitting around? The calamari plate was huge, almost too much,... More

I am always looking for places that fit into my healthy lifestyle. I lost 125 pounds and am the author of "Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous. " I also search for good quality food. This is the place! A 4 ounce petite filet is so savory, that the ala carte cream sauces offered are unnecessary. Sharing a sweet potato side with... More
